Nallatech PCIe-287N Xilinx 7 Series FPGA Network Processing Card

Nallatech introduced their PCIe-287N network processing card. The PCIe-287N features two user-accessible Kintex-7 FPGA devices directly coupled to four SFP+ ports. Each FPGA utilizes multiple independent banks of high-bandwidth, QDR-II+ SRAM and DDR3 SDRAM to support random access and deep storage. A third, dedicated FPGA facilitates an 8-lane, PCIe Gen 2, host interface supporting sustained bandwidths up to 5GBytes/sec.
